In vector plots there is a 'projection mode', If you choose 'tangential' then you get in plane vectors. Why it is called tangential as opposed to in plane is anyone's guess.

Alternatively you could create a local co-ordinate system and then generate a field function of the magnitude of the in plane values. If you have a large number of non-aligned planes this could obviously be painful.
